Spar Scotland stores are to stock ‘heat-to-eat’ products from Planet Café range – the first time the range will be available in Great Britain.
Consumers will be able to purchase six new products from Irish food brand Deli Lites’ recently launched Planet Café range, which is committed to using the finest ingredients from local producers to create quality, responsibly sourced, nutritious food-on-the-go products.
The Planet Café range has been developed to provide consumers with more excitement and choice, specifically providing hot food options to eat when on the move.
The six new recipes are inspired by flavours of the world with a focus on premium ingredients and being kind to the planet. They are the Louisiana Inspired Cajun Chicken Panini, the Ultimate Chicken & Bacon Irish Tósta, the Mexican Inspired Chipotle Beef Burrito, the Grilled Cheese & Ham Irish Tósta, the Tex Mex Inspired Plant Based Burrito and the Tuscan Inspired Veg & Mozzarella Panini in their retail outlets.
Brian Reid, Chief Executive and Co-Founder of Deli Lites, said: “There has been a significant increase in demand for more choice in hot food on the go and the Planet Café offering, which is the first premium range of its kind in the market, has a variety of heat-to-eat products to suit many tastes. With hybrid working now becoming part of everyday life, we expect strong demand for on-the-go healthier lunch options, especially across the UK’s towns and villages as home workers decide to pop out for a healthy walk and heat to eat lunch.
“Now that products from our Planet Café range will be available to Spar customers in 100 stores across Scotland many more customers will have a chance to taste the Planet Café difference. We have no doubt that our heat-to-eat product range in Spar will become a firm favourite with customers.”
Stephen Brown, Head of Food to Go for C J Lang & Son, added: “We’re delighted to be working with Deli Lites to bring these new, innovative food-to-go products to our customers through our network of company-owned Spar stores across Scotland. At Spar Scotland we’re always looking to continually improve upon our existing food-to-go offering, looking for new products to tempt our customers. These products from Planet Café do just that and we’re excited to be the first convenience retailer in the UK to offer up these great-tasting food-to-go products.”
